About This Project
ISL was retained by the City of Spruce Grove to convert underutilized tennis courts to pickleball and better serve the local pickleball club. This redevelopment project at Henry Singer Park included an inventory and analysis of the existing surface condition and structural stability, site amenities and facility access.
Working in collaboration with the local pickleball club, the ISL team gathered input and presented ideas related to court layout options and features to support the club’s regular and tournament play. During the design phase existing barriers needed to be carefully considered and included in the proposed design to ensure player safety and functionality of the game was not impacted.
The final design included 12 new pickleball courts with multi-colour acrylic surfacing, posts/nets, court separation fencing, gates, perimeter fence bracing and windscreen, bleachers, signage, access walk, storage shed, power supply and other general amenities.
The Parkland Pickleheads Pickleball Club host tournaments at this facility that attracts players from across North America.
The Pickleball courts were spaced so existing joints did not impact play, while still maintaining regulation layout dimensions.
ISL performed a full investigation of the roof structure for stability and surface cracks were identified and sealed. New court surface material filled bird baths and ensured positive drainage.
ISL also facilitated meetings between the City and pickleball club. Prepared design options and presented ways to phase and/or cost share specific elements ensuring the project could be constructed within the budget.
